The two "legs" in the rear of your seat might have lost the plasic spacers. These are really important for the ajustment, and the stabilize the seat. Your local VW dealer can get these for you (or you can find them on ebay), and they are really cheap and easy to change. This is a link for DIY.... (NB! Be ware of the side-airbag in Cabrio from 1999-on. Remember to disconnect battery before fixing) http://faculty.ccp.edu/faculty/dreed/campingart/jettatech/seatnew/index.htm Good luck
